The Sailor and the Show Cards

We’ve now finished our creative writing project, after filming over two days in Nottingham.

In this shot we can see the group, chatting after they have tracked down the famous Player’s sailor.  We had a few wardrobe malfunctions on the day – but managed to keep Adam’s trouser’s up with string.  We had lots of fun recreating images from adverts and polishing those acting skills.

The film is now in editing and will be ready for the exhibition The Art of Advertising John Player’s which opens to the public on the 2nd July.  We’ll be having a sneek preview a few days before, with popcorn provided (of course).
